I am Hooked

I mean I am hooked up to the internet at the office. My wonderful secretary spent almost an hour with the phone in one ear while she listened to the techie direct her through the circuits of my laptop to get it working with the Router. And yea it works. So I am now on my computer on the internet. I owe my secretary big time.

We are waiting for the things from Bell South to hook up at home. Should come any day now.

Tonight I lead my first Bible Study here. Pray for me, I haven't led a bible study in I don't know when. I tend to overload people and have too much information, especially when I am nervous. And I am nervous.

We can now get into the garage, and have a path to get to things. I am still looking for my makeup, some of my slacks, cd rewritables. Found some more of the toys today. Maybe that is more important. The kids are still doing okay. They needed some extra tlc this morning which I gave them.

Went to a workshop last night for the Pastors who had moved into this district. It didn't get through until 9pm, and I didn't get home until 10:30pm. I was so tired that I ran a red light that I thought was going to be yellow a little longer. Well who was sitting off to the side of the road. You guessed it, your local police officer. And yes the blue and red lights went on, and he pulled me over. Thank God he was a generous guy and gave me a warning. The workshop was good, and helpful for the first 90 days of ministry. We are expected to write a plan for the 90 days turn it into our District Super, and meet with them every 30 days to review what we have accomplished. I wonder when I are going to get some time off? Can I include that in my plan?

Phew! Glad you didn't get a ticket. Glad things are settling down, too. Hope Bible study went well!

I think "time off" is a very important part of self-care. Let me know if you find a store where I can buy some too. Does it come in a bottle or box?

Thanks Mary Beth, I am glad too.
I just paid the speeding ticket I got in GA before the move. It made me realize I had to slow down, pay attention, that my stress level was too high.

Iris, So glad to hear from you. Thanks for your blessings. Preached anymore sermons, I listened to your mother's day sermon, what a joy to hear a woman's voice preaching. So glad they gave you that opportunity. Keep it up.

Rev Mommy maybe we need to bottle some ourself and we can make some money off of it. I know you needing it even with the good stress of being a C. P. E. student. Thanks for the comment, and hope you get some.

I think I'm the only guy posting on this blog. BOB....SAY SOMETHING!
I, too, am encouraged that your bible study went well. I, your biggest cheerleader, have every confidence that you're landing on your feet and bringing what needs to be brought to your new flock. Keep it up, Rev!
